Love is something that everyone wants. This want for love starts even as early as we are brought to this world. As young children we craved attention and affection. You could call it human instinct. This burning need to be loved even carries on through your childhood. Do you remember your first crush? Every time that you spotted them (maybe from across the playground) you felt compelled to catch their attention in any way possible. I’m sure that you all remember your high school years as well. This might have been the time of your life when you found your first love. Your heart would nearly leap out of your chest when the two of you were together. This love was young, naive but so exciting. Now let us fast forward to your young adult life. Some of you may still walk hand in hand with that young high school love. Some may be cracking down on the studying while working towards their degree. You may find yourself trying to balance school, work, family while also trying to search for the love of your life. There seems to be so much pressure to settle down in your mid-twenties. The need to be loved is still there and in full force.
Love is such an amazing thing if you really think about. It is the strongest medicine. It is the light among the darkness. It is that warm fuzzy feeling in the pit of your stomach. When you find the love of your life you feel complete. Not everyone believes that they have a soul mate. I personally believe though that for every single person on this earth there is someone who is their true match, a yin to their yang. There is a special person who will be there with you through thick and thin, all of the good times and all of the struggles.
There is someone who can balance you, someone who knows how to communicate with you and who loves you unconditionally for who you are. I’m not saying that there is such thing as a “Perfect Pair” though. Let’s be honest: no one is perfect. It would be absurd to expect anyone to be. Even when you find your true match you may still argue,
disagree and accidentally hurt one another. It will not be a walk in the park by any means either. One of the most important things that you can learn about relationships is that they are work. You have to work together as a team. Marriage is an oath to love each other and be a united team for the rest of your lives.
Not everyone will find their true love the same way. Some people may find that their first love has been their true love all along. Some may find their true love during their adventurous early twenties. Some
may find their true love while they are working at their dream job that they have worked so hard for. If I could leave you with anything it would be that everyone deserves to find their true love. Everyone deserves to be loved unconditionally.
